Dubé announced that all bars in the province must now stop all food sales at midnight.
We are now banning the sale of food past midnight in bars.
Health Minister Christian Dubé
The reason behind this decision, as the Health Minister put it, is because "people think they're smarter than the rules" and will just keep adding food to their bill just so that they can continue drinking alcohol.
"But it doesn't work like that. It's done — no more food after midnight in bars," Dubé said firmly.
Quebec bars are also now required to log all customers who enter their establishments.
